Some Covers For Friday Part II

No reason for the picture above this post, other than that I stuck 'Friday' in Google Image and this was the picture I liked best off the first page.

Anyway, it's the end of another long week, but I'm still alive, and still trying to organise wedding stuff with the soon-to-be Mrs. 17 Seconds.

Here are some covers for Friday. the first one I heard live a few months ago, but was brought to my attention by Liz over at the The Roaring Machine yesterday.

Camera Obscura-'Super Trouper.' mp3

Astrid Swan -'When You Were Young.' mp3

Le Tigre-'I'm So Excited.' mp3

Arcade Fire-'Maps.' mp3

CSS-'One Way Or Another.' mp3

Snow Patrol-'Crazy In Love.' mp3

Death Cab For Cutie-'World Shut Your Mouth.' mp3

Editors-'French Disko.' mp3

As always, if you like what you hear, support the artists. These links will be removed after a week.

Have a good one,

Good selection, Ed.

The CSS cover(s) is odd to say the least but quite enjoyable.

At first I thought that Death Cab's WSYM backing sounded so like Copey it wasn;t worth botering about yet the vocals lift it somewhere a bit different.

On the evidence of this version of Maps I might have to revisit my notion that the Manics are the worst band to cover a song!

Glad you enjoyed the selection.

Hoping to get a USB turntable soon, so expect more covers on this blog in weeks to come!

thanks for visiting my wee blog. I am impressed by the eclectic combo today. I especially love the Northwest connection with DCFC and Le Tigre. Thanks for the excellent music.

Here's the therapy? invisible sun cover. It was a b-side for the 'be still' single... hard to believe it was 14 years ago.

Wow, I never realized there were so many funky covers out there. The Snow Patrol was amusing. I rather liked Maps too. Thanks for sharing!
